19ME047 - MAHEC Project ECHO®: High-Risk Prenatal Care (Video Teleconference Series)


Project ECHO® is a lifelong learning and guided practice model that revolutionizes medical education to provide best-practice specialty care and reduce health disparities. ECHO is led by an expert team that uses multi-point videoconferencing to conduct virtual learning sessions comprised of a short didactic followed by case presentations provided by participants. Rural physicians have identified the need for expert medical advice with high-risk prenatal patients in their communities, due to the closure of the Labor and Delivery Departments at certain rural hospitals.
